|The first two Infestors, Venturo and Kraagh|
|Infestors back shot|
Luke Harris (Imperfecz) and Jimmy Rommel (Ironhaus) plan to release six different Infestors, beginning with the set of two shown here (following a previous brief run of "Grunts" roach characters). This initial set consists of Luke's "Kraagh" and Jimmy's "Venturo." They come packaged carded in a blister that can be removed and replaced without damaging it. The back of the packaging includes a brief summary of the Infestors story and bios for both characters, which is definitely a nice touch.

Once again, it's clear that there was a lot of work and thought put behind this release to make it extra special.
As for the roaches, they're very detailed and pretty creepy-looking, like any good roach warriors should be! Both Kraagh and Venturo are cast in a brown/yellow-ish rubber with a dark brown rub, which really accentuates all the lines and crevices of the sculpts. I can't remember seeing this effect used on many indie mini figures, and while I typically prefer my minis completely monochromatic, I have to say the rub really enhances these guys and I'm glad it was used.
|Size comparison with MIMP and Kinnikuman figures|
The figures are around 2 inches tall, with Kraagh being the taller sculpt. I like how although they're both roach-based characters, the two sculpts have a unique look. Venturo has a bulky, stocky look. Kraagh also looks plenty brutish, but the sculpt is a bit leaner and more dynamically-posed, waving his "Atlas Mandible" sword above his head. Both are very well-done, and great choices for introducing the series.
If you'd like to pick up a set of Infestors for yourself, you can do so for $30 through the Imperfecz store. Be sure to keep an eye on the Imperfecz blog for news about upcoming figures in the series.
